Richland Ridge real estate is a conservation based community with over 300 acres of the property permanently protected by conservation easements. The very low density development of only 25 outstanding home sites protects the natural integrity that makes the property so attractive.
Richland Ridge, encompassing approximately 347 acres, is located west of Brevard and east of Lake Toxaway, off of Richland Creek Road, via Silversteeen Road. The community adjoins Pisgah National Forest on over half its border as well as Earthshine Mountain Lodge, and features upland ridge views, meadows and bottom land, and access to over a mile of frontage along the West Fork of the French Broad River.
The community’s amenity area includes a picnic pavilion, river access, riverside recreation area, and camping area, this rustic, passive amenity area is a favorite gathering place. There are great hiking opportunities on the trails through the adjoining conservation property, as well as into the adjoining Pisgah National Forest. A horseshoe pit, tether ball pole, and campfire pit are all situated on the banks of the West Fork of the French Broad River, which offers excellent state hatchery-supported trout fishing. Families enjoy swimming and tubing in the river, and there are plenty of places for picnicking, including in the pavilion just above the river.
